Fortinet will be introducing new wireless access points along with new two-factor authentication products this week. Fortinet’s new products aim to address the challenges presented by bring your own device (BYOD) and wireless network security solutions.

Fortinet will be introducing four new additions to its wireless access point product family with the release of the FortiAP-320B, FortiAP-223B, FortiAP-112B and the FortiAP-11C. The new FortiAP models provide customers looking to integrate secure wireless access with their network security with faster connections, simplified deployment, centralised ‘single pane of glass’ management and reduced total cost of ownership. The devices work with the wireless controller functionality embedded in FortiGate devices.

“The BYOD revolution urges organisations to look at how to embrace an unavoidable practice while minimising its risks,” said Bashar Bashaireh, regional director, Fortinet.

“We are pleased to be part of GITEX, as this is a great platform for us to demonstrate how our new wireless and authentication products along with other embedded security technologies can help organisations deploy a robust, flexible and cost-effective BYOD security infrastructure.”

Fortinet will also be introducing two-factor authentication clients: the FortiToken-200CD, FortiToken-Mobile and FortiToken-300, which offer the flexibility to choose which token solutions best fits the environment. The new tokens work in conjunction with FortiGate and FortiAuthenticator platforms. FortiAuthenticator supports FortiToken across an enterprise by enabling authentication with multiple FortiGate appliances and third party devices.

I have been watching the debate around the BYOD, there has been a big debate over which methods of security are best suited to add additional layers of security and authentication for account access and transaction verification without being unreasonably expensive or complex. From day one I have said the 2FA is a must. The idea of people using their personal devices to enter the company’s system or access secure data greatly worries companies. But the fact is we are in the era of BYOD and add the increasing need for mobility, and it seems that MS is getting prepared and be competitive and make it so employees can telesign into the system or cloud and access data securely.
